While it’s still cheaper than cable, having multiple streaming subscriptions can add up quick. So, Disney+ is joining the wave of ad-supported subscription, and it’s rolling out in the USA in late 2022.
In a recent press release, Disney+ said the introduction of a lower-price, ad-supported subscription is a win for ‘everyone’. Of course, the option will exist alongside the other, ad-free price points, just in case you don’t want to watch a shampoo commercial while you binge watch The Mandalorian or the entire Pixar lineup.
Currently, the plan is if the launch in the US goes well, it will also head to ‘international’ markets in 2023. The option isn’t exactly new to the States (Hulu, which is a subsidiary of Disney, and HBO Max both offer similar packages).
Details about the new offering will be announced ‘at a later date’, and we’ll make sure to keep you updated when it happens!
